In 1992 Vangelis composed the music for the film "1492 - Conquest Of Paradise". Undeniable visually impressive on the big screen, but it was the music that had the biggest impact on me. I immediately scraped every little bit of pocket money together and bought the soundtrack, one of my first CDs ever. The album ran nonstop all day long for days. Later I discovered more and more of Vangelis' previous works.
The last 30 years his music has accompanied me and probably will continue to do so. With his passing this May I am grateful for all the lush musical soundscapes he created as a source of immersion and inspiration for generations to come.

Today my grandfather would have been 97 years old. In memory of him I drew a tree again. This sequoia tree I noticed just recently in our nearby botanic garden (despite the obvious scale).

Heute wäre mein Großvater 97 Jahre alt geworden. In Erinnerung an ihn habe ich wieder einen Baum gezeichnet. Dieser Mammutbaum ist mir erst letztens in unserem botanischen Garten aufgefallen (obwohl eigentlich unübersehbar).
